Casino Royale Review


Went to see the new James Bond film last night.

Fantastic - can't recommend it highly enough. Fast-paced, exciting, funny but not camp, and has Daniel Craig. What more could a girl ask for?

Did Daniel Craig make a good Bond? Absolutely, he was tough, ruthless, witty, handsome (so handsome). He stared a bit much for my liking, I think it was supposed to be steely, but when he smiles oooohhh......

Look out though for the most blatant ever product placement in a script. There was a collective snort throughout the cinema it was so bad.Judi Dench is M. Perhaps the best actress working in Britain today. With her, Craig and other cast members all performing fantastically this was perhaps the best acted Bond film ever.

The best Bond ever? Dunno - I still like Goldfinger, with the best ever line from a Bond movie - "You expect me to talk? No Mr Bond, I expect you to die". Casino Royale is up there though.

Go see! And then all your Daniel Craig nay-sayers eat your words. Bond is here for another good few films yet.

I'm looking forward to seeing this, there are few films families can enjoy together, especially with teenage sons, and James Bond fits the bill.
